He's Got Charm

Today started off slow and lazy. I love days like this! So, since the day is mine to do with as I wish, I decided to finish up a little of the "decorating" in my scraproom. My son put up some shelves and a photo collage frame for me last night so I wanted to get it all set up. I played around with Photoshop Elements printing out photos for the collage frame. The first photo I printed didn't look quite right. Well, what do you know...I'm out of ink..AGAIN! So off to Office Depot to purchase the cartridges I needed, then back home. After getting the printer all set up with new ink cartridges, I finished up the pics for the new frame, and moved on over to my scrapping table.

During a conversation with my oldest daughter last night, she informed me that I scrap more photos of all the other grandchildren more than I do of her son, Jacob...DUH! It's very difficult to keep up with who get scrapped the most when you have 16 grandchildren to scrap for!!! LOL! Anywho...she's right (sort of), it's been a while since I've scrapped a picture of Jacob, so I printed these cool photos of him that I took last fall (worked much better with ink in the printer!)and got busy scrapping! Here's the layout...and I must say, I like the finished product!

I used Basic Grey Cappella papers for this layout. I matted the larger photo with brown then a larger black piece. I tore to bottom of the black piece and the brown piece I matted the smaller photo with. The chipboard stars were bare chipboard that I painted green, then coated them with glitter glam. Once that dried, I smudged all chipboard with a little walnut ink stain. On the smaller photo, I added a bit of twine and tied a button on top. I added a couple of little metal embellies (because I was challenged to do so by a group of friends).

That's about it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by...Until next time...


Pin It!

Nice- he's a cutie!

I like the torn edges, but I especially like the arrow and the stars.

As always, a beautiful LO!

I've never scrapped a single page, so am no authority by any stretch, but have to say he sure is a Charmer. My kids also look at the collages of photos on my walls and make a case for who is the "favorite" grandchild. But I only have 4! 16 would be sooooo fun, but oh my would I hate to do the Christmas shopping for a bunch that huge.

Great LO! I love the colors and embellishments. I have a hard time making masculine cards or LOs and you have made it look very easy here. Thanks for leaving a lovely comment on my blog!

Yes, he does - great layout. I have not done any scrapping for my grandies for precisely this reason - too many people too quick to count. I am a WSGM (wicked-step-grand-mother) so have to tread carefully at times. BUT, I would like to start now after seeing this one.
